The technique consists of three main steps: (1) application of a zinc chloride fixative paste, (2) excision of a layer of fixed tissue, and (3) systematic microscopic scanning of frozen sections cut through the undersurface of the specimens. The procedure is repeated in the cancerous areas until a completely cancer‐free plane is reached. Advantages of… CONTINUE READING
